Starting tomorrow I will be posting
a new photo each day. I did this before
in my "Snap a Day" blog. It was fun and
a good practice for me. I'll still be
participating in other's blogs,
 but will relate my new photos to reflect the subject of their blogs!  
Have a lovely day!

Wordless Wednesday December 13, 2017

Life can just get to darn busy this time of year....
I missed this week's Awww Monday
so I am now posting two photos for Awww Monday
and am on time for Wordless Wednesday!
Thanks Sandee for all you do!   
  



Above is Lucy sleeping in her favorite sunny spot....
our dining room table! 
And nope she never ever tries to eat our food...
Good kitty!! 




If you look carefully you can see two little 
marsupial gliders....the man who cuts my hair fosters
these two cuties. He has had them for 3 years
 as the people who had them could not care for them. 
They are nocturnal so look 
a bit bewildered by all the daylight. 




My dear friend Malia took this lovely photo 
at Cannon Beach while her son and three daughters
were walking towards Haystack Rock.
This is an amazing image.

Shadow Shot Sunday December 3, 2017


It's finally safe to burn all the manzanita
accumulated this summer. Every year we
have to cut back this underbrush to lessen wildfires. 
Then we wait for the county to determine
 if it is safe to burn all the debris. 
It only took us one day to do this! Now we can relax!
Have a great weekend!
~~~~~
Zip over here to see more Shadow Shots.
PS I took the header photo yesterday around 5:38pm PST
